|I used 'GoldRush' apples and 'Kanza' pecans in this Apple Pecan Bread with Dried Tart Cherries. The recipe is posted as a Note on our Facebook page, Brendas Berries.|
Harvested apples are kept in top condition in our cooler, which is now full of 4000 pounds of apples. We also still have a few bags each of many selections from my apple breeding program. I give taste samples of all of our apple varieties and selections, to those interested in buying them.
|We now have 5-lb. bags of cracked 'Kanza', a larger pecan variety with excellent flavor, pecans for sale.|
Our workers and I have been transplanting strawberries on warmer afternoons, and applying mulch to the new strawberry beds that Bill prepared a few weeks ago. In a few weeks I'll apply mulch on top of the strawberry plants to protect them from winter cold.
